The Flora-Bama is a beach-side roadhouse that prides itself on annual events such as the Shindig in the Sand and the Interstate Mullet Toss. One annual event that can sometimes go unnoticed by the general public is its raucous Halloween celebration. With its large gathering of costumed partiers, Halloween at The Flora-Bama is one of the best opportunities to people watch, and the night always ends with one of the best costume contests on the Gulf Coast. The Flora-Bama also provides its Halloween guests with musical entertainment. This year, it’s Nashville’s Jon Pardi.
Capitol artist Pardi is on tour and preparing for the release of his second full-length album. Fans are getting a taste of the new album with its debut single, “Head Over Boots,” which Pardi co-wrote with Luke Laird (Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton). Pardi’s vocals conjure the spirit of Hank Williams Sr. as he croons his way through songs about country love. Hopefully the Halloween crowd at The Flora-Bama will get to sample more of his new material.
